Drug Addiction Assessment Process


Drug Addiction Assessment Process

The process begins by calling the Houghton House enquiry line. You will then speak to a professional person who is equipped to carry out a brief telephonic evaluation of the next step forward. This may involve immediate admission and or setting up an assessment.

Should the individual require and be willing to be admitted directly the practical aspects of this process can be facilitated with our support. An assessment process will identify the treatment needs based on the individual’s emotional, physical and psychiatric history.

The financial considerations and the relevant medical aid cover will all be addressed.

Should the individual be suitable for treatment at any of the treatment options at Houghton House arrangements will be made. If an alternate treatment facility is preferable we will assist with referrals.
